Welcome back to Next-Gen Console Watch 2020, our new show following all the news and rumors on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Series S. This week, our host Daemon Hatfield, joined by Ryan McCaffrey, host of IGN's Xbox podcast, Podcast Unlocked, and Jonathon Dornbush, host of IGN's PlayStation podcast, Podcast Beyond discuss the growing gap between Xbox and PlayStation's subscription service options. While Xbox continues to grow one one of the best deals in gaming, PlayStation doesn't seem pressured to be competitive in that space. Our cast compare and contrast Xbox's Game Pass lineup and Game Pass Ultimate options with PlayStation's answer across several different services (PS Plus and PS Now), with varying prices and benefits. Next up, E3 2021 is shaping up after the event's absence from 2020's calendar. After picking up heavyweights like Ubisoft, Capcom, Take-Two, Warner Bros. Games, Konami, Nintendo, and Xbox with Bethesda in tow, there's a notable repeated absence from the list as Sony bows out once again. Will the console giant ever bring PlayStation back to the biggest show in gaming? Lastly, check out our poll results from last week on what you want from the future of CD Projekt Red after Cyberpunk's troubled launch as well as our poll question for this week, which subscription service is best? Is it Xbox Game Pass, Game Pass Ultimate, PlayStation Plus (PS Plus, PS+), or PlayStation Now (PS Now)?
